4 Ways To Spruce Up A Bare Hallway

Barren white walls be gone!


It's safe to say that hallways are an odd part of the home—it's long, narrow, and some might even think that it's too tight for styling. While that may be true to an extent, it's still important that we turn this space into a pretty and functional corner as we use and pass by it everyday. Who knows? With a few charming touches, it might even be your new favorite spot at home. Check out how you can breathe new life into dull runways below: 

1. Extend your space with a mirror gallery. 

If you're working with tight spaces, you can open up the room through light and reflection by setting up a mirror gallery. Collect one-of-a-kind frames from flea markets and mix it with high-quality pieces from the department store for a quirky feel. 

2. Add comfortable seating. 

If you're lucky enough to have a huge window by the hallway, consider building a built-in bench. After all, nothing beats having a sunny little nook where you can unwind with a great read on a lazy afternoon. Don't forget to add fluffy pillows to make it extra cozy!

3. Jazz up the floor with patterned tiles. 

For those who aren't on board with the idea of moving furniture into the hallway or painting the walls a fresh coat of color, consider replacing your musty floorboards with cement and encaustic tiles. Much like the feature walls that many of us love, patterned floors are a great way to give character to the space

4. Play with wallpaper. 

Just like the patterned floors, wallpaper allows you to be adventurous with different prints and designs without having to do much else. If you are set on adding a few decor pieces, consider going for items in the same color scheme as your wallpaper for a cohesive final look.
